I think neighbours really make our life brighter. I’ve got fantastic neighbours — in fact, they’re a part of the family, not just neighbours. We often go out together, to visit a café or a restaurant or even go hiking. When I have to leave my house for a few days I feel quite safe as I know my place will be watched and my pets will be well taken care of.
Well, I get along well with all my neighbours except one. The woman who lives next door has 15 cats! Can you imagine, 15? These awful creatures are everywhere: in her flat, on the roof, on all the windowsills, near all the doors, everywhere. I hate their smell, their fur, their cries. I tried to talk to the woman many times but … in vain. I’m really thinking of changing my flat now.
To tell the truth, I don’t know what to say… In fact, I don’t have neighbours at all. I live in a large mansion far away from hustle and bustle of the city life. The nearest village is 2 km away. And I really adore it. I don’t feel lonely at all. If I need a company I just drive my car to the nearest town to meet with my friends. Or simply use the Internet for a little chat with the people I like.
You know, my problem is not my neighbours but er… lack of space. There’re, like, not enough places to park. So, people park their cars just anywhere. If I work long hours I have to leave my car very far from my house. As I usually have to carry my laptop, food and other staff, the idea of walking quite a long way depresses me. It would be much better if our street was not as narrow as it is.
As for our neighbours, most of them are OK. However, one of them has a strange hobby: he plays drums! Surely there’s nothing bad with playing drums. But why should one do it at home when there are some 30 people living nearby?! Just yesterday, he came home at midnight and …None of us could sleep any longer. We had to call the police. They came only 2 hours later when the neighbor fell asleep and everything was quite peaceful. We looked silly!
I live in a new block of flats in the suburbs of the city. The house is new so nobody knows each other. It’s really awful if you ask me. Every day I meet different people who never greet each other or have any kind of social talk. Two days ago while cooking I realized that I had run out of salt. It was bitterly cold outside so I decided to ask neighbours for help. I tried 4 flats! In vain. They just didn’t open!
